Hello list,

I want to calculate and display the inter frame spacing between two 802.11 frames (the time between end of frame of a packet and the start of the next packet). My 802.11 radio header contains the EOF time in micro second resolution. I can calculate the transmit time with the bitrate and packet length, etc. So the gives me the start of frame time. But how can I obtain the EOF time from a previous packet in my dissector?
Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

Martijn Schipper.
